Hey, kids! United Airlines says children flying alone need to go nonstop or stay home.
United says it’s no longer allowing children ages 5 to 11 to fly without an adult on flights that include connections. It also says its optional service for unaccompanied minors ages 12-17 will only be offered on nonstop flights.
It made the changes quietly two weeks ago. United charges $150 extra, each way, for children flying alone.
